The Government’s chief medical adviser has called the NHS a “significant polluter” after her annual report revealed the health service creates 590,000 tonnes of waste a year – more than the entire municipal waste from some European countries like Cyprus and Luxembourg.

A NONDESCRIPT corner of a hospital site is being used to drive what Gwent's health board and a south Wales company hope will be a revolution in waste recycling.

Welsh environmental regulator, Natural Resources Wales, is “strongly advising” waste companies to comply with the rules.

Hospital bosses have introduced a scheme to recycle surgical drapes, wraps and other plastics used within Burton NHS. 

The Circular Economy package, with recycling targets and other requirements, has been formally agreed today (18 April) by the European Parliament with only final approval needed by ministers before it becomes law.
